Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine! And this week i am waiting on:

Illuminated
Some loves are not made to last . . . Like Romeo and Juliet, Heloise and Abelard were doomed from the start, and their romance was destined to pass into history. Yet when sixteen-year-old Callie Martin discovers a diary hidden within an antique book, their story—and hers—takes on another life. For the diary leads Callie to the brilliant and handsome August, who is just as mysterious as the secret the diary hides. Their attraction is undeniable. As the two hunt down the truth behind the diary—and that of Heloise and Abelard’s ancient romance—their romance becomes all-consuming. But Callie knows it can’t last . . . love never does. Will their love that burns as bright as a shooting star flame out, or will these star-crossed lovers be able to defy history?~Goodreads

I shall admit I was initially drawn to this book simply because of its cover. It. Is. Gorgeous. The guy, the light, THE GUY. His name is August. Are you kidding me!? That is so sexy! I’m already in love with him. Oh and I guess the story sounds pretty good too! :P

Fated romance always gets my heart-a-flutterin'! So can we fast forward to December so i can read this beauteous thing?! Huh? What do you mean i'll just have to wait? Fine. You're right, it will be worth it! :)

  9. Hm, I don't know. I'm not crazy about the name August. But I do love the cover of Illuminated. Next month being September makes the release date feel a lot closer.
